2022 Honda Classic fantasy picks, rankings, sleepers, advice: Golf expert says back Oosthuizen, fade Berger


The PGA Tour players will face a tough challenge this week when the 2022 Honda Classic tees off Thursday at PGA National. The event in Palm Beach Gardens is the first leg of the PGA Tour’s Florida Swing, and the Tom Fazio-designed course with updates by Jack Nicklaus will present a stern test. Water and bunkers are almost constantly a threat and could frustrate a Honda Classic field featuring Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger, Sungjae Im and a host of European players making their season debuts. Caesars Sportsbook lists Im as the 12-1 favorite in its latest 2022 Honda Classic golf odds. Berger (18-1), Koepka (20-1), Genesis winner Joaquinn Niemann (20-1) and Louis Oosthuizen are among the other top contenders in the 2022 Honda Classic field.

Will the Koepka who tied for third in Phoenix be the one to show up, or will it be the one who missed the cut at Riviera? Will Niemann keep up the pace after his impressive display last week and help you win with your  2022 Honda Classic Fantasy golf picks? Before setting your fantasy golf lineups or making any bets on the 2022 Honda Classic, you need to check out the fantasy golf projections and lineup advice from SportsLine fantasy expert Riley Gates.

Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly five years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports, and he has been on fire this season.  

In his picks for the WM Phoenix Open, nine of Gates’ selections finished in the top 14, and his top five all posted top-10 finishes. The previous week, in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, eight of Gates’ selections finished in the top 16.

He also nailed his picks at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, with four of his top seven picks posting top-five finishes. And at the Hero World Challenge, again four of his top seven finished in the top five. Anyone who has followed Gates is way up. 

Now, Gates has ranked his top 20 golfers for the 2022 Honda Classic. You can only see his fantasy golf rankings and Honda Classic picks at SportsLine.

2022 Honda Classic Fantasy golf expert picks

The golf expert is looking for more big things from Oosthuizen this week after his performance at the Phoenix Open. The South African had been off for almost three months but showed little sign of rust in shooting three rounds in the 60’s to tie for 14th. He has two top-15 finishes in three full events, and he leads the tour in greens in regulation (78.2 percent). All that comes on the heels of his stellar play last season, when the 39-year-old finished in the top 25 in 14 of his 21 tournaments, Gates likes the veteran’s chances to contend this week at PGA National.

On the other hand, Gates is not sold on Berger and is fading him this week. The 28-year-old had a back injury that forced him out of the tournament at Pebble Beach then missed the cut in Phoenix. He said he is healthy and ready to play in Palm Beach Gardens, but his swing might need to be reset. He is 158th on tour in strokes gained putting this season and 78th in strokes gained around the green. Combined with his 172nd-place standing in driving distance, he hasn’t been posting impressive numbers. Berger has shot in the 70’s in four of his last five rounds.

How to set your 2022 Honda Classic Fantasy golf rankings

For this week at PGA National, the fantasy expert is backing a long shot who is listed at around 30-1. This golfer’s recent results haven’t measured up to his talent. Gates expects him to turn things around and sees him as a must-play for your Fantasy golf picks for the tournament at PGA National. You can find out who it is, and check out all of Gates’ top Honda Classic fantasy golf picks at SportsLine.
